Tabbicus is a member of the furry fandom. He was introduced to it by A.G. Silver Shepherd in December of 2005. He has been mated to Khortl Wolf since October of 2006.

The character[edit]

Tabbicus Polydactyl Domesticus (commonly shortened to Tabbi or Tabs) has adopted the avatar of a polydactyl cat. His fur is royal blue with yellow markings. He has medium-length maroon hair and green eyes.

Origins[edit]

The main inspiration for the Tabbicus fursona was one of Tabbi's cats in real life, Paws. Like the character, he was a polydactyl Maine Coon.

The name, Tabbicus Domesticus, has no real-life significance. It was coined to sound like a taxonomic classification.

Tabbi's main colors (blue, gold, and maroon) were inspired by the colors of the Arizona State Flag.

Con attendance and activity[edit]

Tabbicus has attended the following conventions and furry events:

Poker Tournaments[edit]

Tabbi previously directed poker tournaments at Califur and Rocky Mountain Fur Con. As of 2014, he runs Further Confusion's tournament. As of 2015, Tabbi runs the charity tournament for Biggest Little Fur Con. In 2019, Tabbi begun running the charity tournament for Painted Desert Fur Con.

Degen Con[edit]

In 2018, Tabbi organized and initiated Degen Con, an annual private furmeet held at the Aquarius Casino Resort in Laughlin, Nevada. The name is a tongue-in-cheek description of the gambling habits of its attendees. Other activities include group meals, day trips, and fursuiting along the Colorado River. The event is held annually on December 26-30 and has occurred every year since its inception.

In June 2021, the inaugural Degen Con East occurred in and around Atlantic City, New Jersey. A second iteration occurred in August 2022.
